    Shouldn't you be asking this on Sony forum? 😑

    Hi @Fakhar 746,

    Do you mean an OTG cable/adapter? You still need a charger with another cable which will plug into your OTG cable/adapter. I don't know what plug/socket type you have but you probably need a USB-A plug to go into your OTG adapter.

    Cheers 🙂

    Maybe he wants to use an OTG connected to his Nokia to charge his Xperia. I am not sure Nokia phones offer reverse charging. Anbody tried it out?

    Hi @singhnsk,

    Good idea, and unfortunately I don't know. However, considering how "feature free" HMD's phones are when it comes to USB connectivity I would assume that it's not possible.

    I hope that helps @Fakhar 746?

    Cheers 🙂

    Okayyyyyy! I checked it with my Nokia 7.2 and at least this device can do reverse charging. I was able to bring charge to my Nokia 2.2 xD

    Nice work @singhnsk 😃

    What cable adapter setup did you use? I don't think I've got what's needed to test with my Nokia 8.

    Cheers 🙂

    I just used the OnePlus USB Type-C to USB-A (female) OTG cable. I got it long ago. I used the Nokia USB-A (male) to Micro-USB (male) to connect the wire further to my Nokia 2.2.

    The same setup works to connect USB mouse and keyboard to the phone 😊 Even the wireless ones. I used a Logitech wireless Mice in the screenshot below using the unifying adapter connected using the same OTG cable.

    I'm unsure if Nokia 8 can do it. But i'll test it in my Nokia 7 (2017) tomorrow. Let's see how that one handles OTG. If that does, maybe 8 does too?

    Hi @singhnsk,

    Did the Nokia 7 work? I don't have the cables I need to test with the 8.

    Cheers 🙂

    *tries to power his PC via OTG*

    *fails*

    Somehow Zenfone 2 charges n7.2, but reverse situation isn't possible.

    Hi @FTBK,

    Strange, maybe it depends which order you plug them in? The OTG cable tells the phone to be the host, so if you do it in a certain order maybe it determines which one is host.

    Cheers 🙂
